Product description of Riedel Glasses 'Sommeliers' Cognac Vsop 16.5 cm

The old Brandy-glass is dead! Yann Fillioux, the head-taster of Hennessy developed a Cognac-glass together with Georg Riedel in 1988. The blind-tasting showed that the numerous glass-designs of common Brandy-glasses couldn't manage it. It became obvious that the popular balloon-shaped glasses have a too wide evaporation surface and that they underline the sharpness of the alcohol.

"That's not a surprise for me", says Yann Filloux, "For our intern tastings at Hennessy we usually use tight, small-volumed glasses."

as a result of the blind-tasting at Riedel's. In the first run Hennessy's standard quality (V.S.O.P) was taken to adjust the glass design and size.

Here an especially small glass with content of 160 ccm and a lipped rim was the best. In this design the quality V.S.O.P. developed a finesse-rich Caramel-aroma and harmonically woven in wood. At the palate the tip of the tongue feels the fruit and only at the finish the Cognac develops its well-known fire. That makes the taste pleasant without emphasizing the hotness of the alcohol.

Recommended for: Armagnac young, Brandy, Calvados, Cognac V.S.O.P., Rum, Weinbrand.
